The NOAH Center

Building a bond for life
The NOAH Center is a nonprofit Animal Adoption Center and Spay & Neuter Clinic dedicated to stopping the euthanasia of healthy, adoptable, and treatable homeless cats and dogs through our adoption and low-cost spay/neuter programs. 

A Comprehensive Approach

The NOAH Center is working to end the euthanasia of healthy and adoptable pets. We believe that the companionship of a furry friend is priceless, and are here to help make it a possibility for all. We have saved the lives of over 45,000 homeless cats and dogs, matching them with their forever homes, and provided spay and neuter surgeries for well over 130,000 pets.

We’re making a difference for animals in need, and their families. Join us.


Join us for some spooky family-friendly fun at Legion Park in Arlington this October! Enjoy live music, street food, vendors in the park, a beer & wine garden, and the Dog-Treat Walk throughout participating businesses!

Donate Pet Food!

Kitten season is upon us and we are in need of kitten food, both dry and wet! If you would like to donate food for our homeless kittens, head to our wishlist to learn more about how to give!

family-friendly pet adoptions

We believe that the joys of animal companionship should be accessible for all. Get to know our adoption process, and view our available pets!


Spay and Neuter is a cornerstone of our work, preventing unwanted litters and keeping even more animals out of the already crowded shelter system.

Building a pawsitive future: capital campaign

Our current Spay & Neuter Clinic needs your help! When originally designed, the Clinic expected to perform around 2,500 spay and neuter surgeries per year, but we complete well over 8,000 annually and we’re busting at the seams. We’re raising 3 million dollars to build a new, thoughtfully designed, and state-of-the-art high-volume spay and neuter clinic, but we need YOUR help to see this important vision become a reality.
